programmes and equipment from the vessels to be decommissioned will be
installed. Their value will total to 40-60 billion euros.
Maintenance and servicing
In addition to the cost of the vessels,
there is also the cost of use, maintenance and servicing. It is possible that
the vessels will have to be refurbished after 15 years of operation.
